Guidelines & Protocols

The National Women and Infants Health Programme was established in January 2017, to lead the management, organisation and delivery of maternity, gynaecology and neonatal services. 

The National Clinical Guidelines are a programme of work agreed between the National Women and Infants Health Programme and the Institute of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of the Royal College of Physicians in Ireland. In March 2021, Professor Keelin O’Donoghue was appointed as the new Clinical Lead for Guideline Development (Maternity and Gynaecology). National clinical guidelines on pregnancy loss and perinatal death are available on this website, and through the NWIHP and RCPI websites.
